Richmond the first night was indeed something special. In my opinion the DP does not do the show near enough justice. The energy in the Coliseum that night was incredible, I would have to put it amongst the most powerful I've felt. The Gloria was one of the most glorious feelings I've had at a show, the sight of the entire crowd going absolutely bonkers will stay with me for a long time. Now when I listen to the recording, it leaves me a little flat which I'm guessing is because when you get a feeling like that from a show, no tape will ever recreate it. In fact, I think I only listened to the recording once and will probably not again because I want that memory and feeling to remain un-tarnished. As usual, that's just me.

Again, same exact feeling here. I think coming back to back with the Holloween fun in Columbia the night before helped get the vibe going early. The second set just blew me away. I never found a recording that brought half the energy.

Same here, and I think that for all us in attendance we never had that same experience at any other show of belting out at the top of our lungs "G-L-O-R-I-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" GLORIA.
